One of the best meals we had in Amsterdam. I had tofu in black bean sauce and the taste was good, not too spicy but had a nice punch.

Our last day and we didn't want to be spent up so looked this place up. Managed to get seated inside, not many seats as it's mainly a takeaway. Not a huge menu but good non the less. A really enjoyable meal for half the price we paid to elsewhere (€14 for the two of us). Not a big plate... More

My dining experiences in Amsterdam have been quite disapointing, but Yu Family definitely stood out in a positive way. The price is quite ok with 7-9 Euros for a main dish and the portions are ok. It's not like I was totally full afterwards, but I was no longer hungry and it tasted very well (my girlfriend, former owner of... More

Having looked for a recommendation on Tripadvisor we chose this eatery. It's more of a takeaway with a few seats to eat in if you prefer. We visited here around 18.00 and were served quickly. The chef cooks your food to order and you can watch while he cooks if you want to. The beef and the vegetables were well... More

Cheap and cheerful, quick and pretty tasty. Good amount of fresh vegetables in the dishes. Nice central location. To be recommended if you want quick, cheap, moderately sized, a pretty reasonable Chinese food.

Very nice small Chinese. Very friendly staff for the whole experience. The menu is simple, helpful, and easy to read. The food is a great size portion, and for a good price. I had a chicken meal with egg fried rice and it was very nice, with many pieces of chicken throughout which sometimes doesn't happen when you're only paying... More

It was so good we went back again the next day. Not much of a restaurant, more like a takeaway with a few stools inside and a couple of tables outside. You pick your meat or tofu, then your sauce and what you want with it noodles, boiled rice or fried rice. I had tofu with mixed veg In curry... More
